Mexican Chicken Potato Skillet

This is perfect for any night, but I think Fridays will be best in our house!  This is super easy and only takes one dish.  I love to use chicken breasts or chicken tenders that I get on sale for this dish; it is great for keeping the breast moist.  Mexican dishes are always a hit with everyone and I think we’re going to try this one next week 😀  My husband always asks why I don’t cook this more often when I cook it LOL


  • 6-8 medium russet potatoes
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 2# chicken breast cut into 1″ cubes
  • Old El Paso chipotle cooking sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup shredded colby jack cheese
  • 2 green onions, chopped for garnish
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup chopped tomatoes

Get to cooking:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease large iron skillet well then spread chicken in the bottom.
  3. Sprinkle the chopped yellow onion on top of the chicken.
  4. Spread potatoes on top of onions and add salt and pepper to taste.

  6. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour then uncover and bake an additional 20-30 minutes.

  9. This dish will easily serve 6-8 people.
  10. ENJOY!
